Mahamudra meditation, while highly advanced, is yet simple and practical because what is identified...

The Jefferson Tibetan Society of Charlottesville, VA was pleased to sponsor, organize and host a Public Lecture by Dr. Alan Wallace on December 8, 2006. Dependent Origination in Buddhism and Science The pluralistic and naturalistic perspective of Buddhism offers an alternative to the false absolutes that appear in the idols of religion and science. The Buddhist principle of dependent origination, specifically as it is expressed in the "Middle Way" view, advocates a kind of universal...

Can we fit together? A tragedy set in the barren land of Edgon...

This 1859 short story probably influenced both Maupassant's "The Horla" and Bierce's "The Damned Thing". It's pretty spooky all by itself, though. The second phase of the story is a science fiction take -- a very odd one. See what you think.

“The following report appeared in the Argus newspaper of Saturday, the 28th July, 18-- “Truth is said to be stranger than fiction, and certainly the extraordinary murder which took place in Melbourne on Thursday night, or rather Friday morning, goes a long way towards verifying this saying.
